    Default A Blast From The Past. 'Practical Wireless' Magazine Jan 1977.

    I found this interesting just for the ads. The prices would make you weep compared to modern ones.

    Used to buy the magazine in the '60s, also 'Practical Electronics' and, later, 'Elector' magazine. As well as the occasional 'Wireless World'.

    I have a few early copies of early audio magazines, Hi-Fi News in particular. Yes, prices in those days seem to be very low, but compared to an average person's weekly wage they were comparatively expensive. Hi-fi has always been an expensive hobby, unless you build much of it yourself (which is what I did to start).
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
